type of intellectual games and patience puzzles with trump positions

comparison of identical colors and numerical values or digital meanings
 

Rules of 1st card game.
Use first pack having dark circles on backs of playing cards. Preliminary distribute cards according to presence and absence of daggers, namely each player plays with proportional playing group from structure of one pack.
After distribution playing cards have on the game board in initial positions how is shown on figure1.
Namely two players are friend opposite to friend on different parties of game board where playing cards are open in initial positions as chessmen, and also focus arrows aside opponents.
Pay attention that playing cards in initial game positions do not coincide with colors of squares which are painted differently on different halves of chess board. It provides equal force of playing cards of two proportional groups which belong to players and are opposed as chessmen.
Before beginning of game it is necessary to turn upside-down 1B (blue one) and 1R (red one). These turned playing cards or closed sheets will be check, and will actually play a role of chess kings.
Then players by turns one after another move own cards on adjacent squares of game board over verticals, horizontals or diagonals, namely amplitude of moving is similar to chess kings.
During game it is possible to beat playing cards of opponent according to colors and numerical values, and also according to trump positions on squares of corresponding suits. Namely as in traditional card games but in view of trump positions on squares which have corresponding colors. Namely if playing card appears during moving on a square of corresponding color then becomes trump.
For example, 8R red eight can beat any red playing card on any squares of game board, as has the most senior numerical value within own color. And also 8R can beat any playing card on red squares, as in this case it will be trump.
On the other hand 8R can be beaten by playing cards of other colors in the event that they will be trump. For example, 2Y yellow two can beat 8R red eight on yellow squares.
Rules essentially do not differ from traditional card games such as "fool" or "bridge". But trump positions of playing cards are actual according to squares of game board.
Players during game distinguish own and another's playing cards by means of focusing arrows, and also daggers on faces of sheets. Check playing cards differ with presence and absence of daggers on backs.
Check playing cards are turned upside-down, and in essence do not possess colors and numerical values. Therefore check sheets cannot beat, but can be beaten by any cards on any squares of game board.
Game is finished when check playing card of someone of players will be beaten.

In card games and intellectual patience puzzles on a chess board it is possible to apply special rule according to which playing cards of identical numerical values can beat each other on any squares.

Game can be carried out by two proportional groups of playing cards from second pack and initial positions which are shown on figure 2.
Initial game positions can be different depending on various packs, and can be others rather than offered in the present manual. Namely card packs in the set of offered board game are distributed on proportional groups differently, that is possible to use in different variants of rules and instructions.

There can be two check playing cards for each player, namely preliminary 1R and 1G can be turned by backs upwards in one proportional group, and 1B and 1Y in the second proportional group .
1G and 1Y are false check cards. And players do not know which of two is false but should beat only one of them to win.
 

rank-order positions or casual initial arrangements as chessmen

basic principle or formation of digital combinations as hands in poker

Rules of 4th card game.
Key rule is beaten playing cards as in the previous game.
Difference consists that two card packs are used. Namely two players play by two packs which differ with presence and absence of dark frames and circles on faces and backs of playing cards, and also by means of focusing arrows which direct on opponents.
From each pack take 16 playing cards with numerical values from 1 to 4 and from 10 to 40, and have on squares of chess board in initial game positions, as shown in figure 4.
Numerical values or digital meanings 1-10, 2-20, 3-30, 4-40 are considered as equal, and consequently players possess equivalent sets of playing cards.
Before beginning overturn upside-down 1R (red one) and 10B (blue ten) which are considered as check playing cards. After the problem consists that it is necessary for each player to beat check playing card of opponent as in rules of the previous game.

If two reduced packs with numerical values from 1-10 and 4-40 are used then it is impossible to apply the rule according to which playing cards of identical digits can beat each other, otherwise gaming interaction as such is impossible.
In various intellectual games or puzzles it is possible to apply different rules according to which playing cards beat each other. More often games are playable in the event that playing cards of identical digits can beat each other at use of two proportional groups from structure of one pack, and can not beat each other at use of two reduced packs with numerical values from 1-10 and 4-40.
Besides it is possible to apply the rule which is described in instructions of initial version of the present board game, namely it can be authorized to beat not any playing cards of identical digits, but only identical colors and digital meanings.
For example, in one case 3R can beat 30R, 30Y, 30G, 30B, namely any other threes. And in the second case 3R can beat only identical 30R, and cannot beat threes of other color suits.

Distance for moving of playing cards can be any number of squares over verticals, horizontals or diagonals. Namely moving amplitude can be similar to chess queens.
In any games it can be authorized to move playing cards over any number of board squares as chess queens, but at that correct initial positions for equal chances of players to win are necessary. For example, it is possible to have playing cards in trump positions on squares of corresponding colors, as shown in figure 5.
Or it is possible to randomize cards in initial playing positions, though results of games depend on ordinary luck in this case.

Various intellectual games and patience puzzles in which players or gamers preliminary have playing cards in initial rank-order positions or casual initial arrangements and then move sheets on board squares similarly to chessmen are in total possible. Variations can consist in ways of moving and rules according to which playing cards beat each other. And also in problems or tasks which players solve with a view of competition of winners.

Other type of intellectual games and patience puzzles differs that basic principle or key rule is formation of suit and digital combinations which are similar to hands of playing cards in poker.
Playing cards in games and puzzles of this type can be preliminary as chessmen in initial positions for moving on squares. Or it is possible to play within linear structure of chess board as in poker games without moving.
As minimum three playing cards of identical color or numerical value, and also sequences or successive digital meanings which are located in lines on verticals, horizontals or diagonals are considered as combinations. As much as possible combinations of suits and digits can include up to 8 playing cards, that is caused by sizes of game board. But minimal combinations should contain three playing cards which should be on adjacent squares.
Colors of squares on the game board are not taken into account at formation of combinations in these card games.
When colors and numerical notations of squares are not considered it is possible to use the colorless chess board which is presented in the initial version of this game construction.

combinations or hands of tiles or pieces in the Chinese game of Mahjong Rules of 18th card game.
Game is carried out by two reduced packs with numerical values of playing cards from 1-10 to 4-40 which preliminary have initial positions as chessmen, as shown in figure 12.
Before 1B and 10B (blue one and ten) overturn upside-down and use as check playing cards or as sheets of chess kings.
Then players by turns move playing cards of own packs as chess kings over verticals, horizontals or diagonals, and during moving can form combinations of suits and digits.
Playing cards of opponent in structures of combinations remove from game board. And own cards remain.
Players should make moving and only after that have rights to remove playing cards of opponent from structures of combinations.
If combinations are formed of playing cards of one player then are not considered.
On each other playing cards during game are not imposed, and consequently combinations can be formed only during moving on free squares. But game problem or task consists that each player should impose any own card on check sheet of opponent, that means a prize.
Sheets of check playing cards can move on squares of game board as others, but cannot be involved in structures of combinations.

Game can be carried out by two proportional groups of playing cards of structure of one pack. Such variant differs that playing cards in proportional groups have 8 numerical values, but reduced packs have 4 digital meanings, and consequently different number of combinations can be formed during game interaction.

It is possible to permit formation of combinations by means of imposing playing cards on each other.

Amplitude of moving of playing cards can be similar to chess queens.

Rules of card game 65.
Any number of players can take part in this card game.
Two packs preliminary shuffle and display in casual order by backs upwards on 64 squares of game board.
Then players by turns open any playing cards and leave on those squares on which they have been opened.
If open playing cards form combinations then player take them from the game board.
Players can shift open playing cards on any free squares which appear on the game board, but only in the event that combinations will be formed as a result of such rearrangements.
If open playing card does not form a combination then should remain on that square on which it is opened.
Game comes to the end when all cards are opened. That player wins who has taken greater number of playing cards from the game board.

This card game can be played as patience puzzle.
Before playing cards can be located on the game board in casual order by backs or faces upwards.
If playing cards have backs upwards then rules of patience are similar to the basic variant of game. And if playing cards have faces upwards then player removes combinations which exist after initial arrangement. Then player chooses any open playing cards on the game board and shifts on free squares. But player has the right to shift cards only in that case when a combination will be formed.
Playing cards of combinations remove from the game board. As a result this patience puzzle is considered as solved if playing cards does not remain on the game board.
If playing cards form crossed combinations then it is possible to observe a rule which permits to remove only one of them. And also it is possible to apply a rule according to which  removing of existing combinations from the game board is obligatory.

Card games and patience puzzles based on formation of color and digital combinations can have different rules and instructions. The listed variants of rules do not consider huge playing variety.
And also combinations of playing cards according to various variants of games and puzzles can be different. But optimal order of colors and numerical values are offered combinations which in essence correspond to hands of playing tiles or pieces in the Chinese game of Mahjong. Though poker hands are considered as traditional combinations for card games.
It is possible to approve that Chinese Mahjong is a poker card game. Because symbols on game tiles or pieces in Mahjong are equivalent to color suits and numerical values of playing cards. Though usually Chinese game of Mahjong has comparing with dominoes.

Following type of card games and patience puzzles differs that the key rule is comparison of identical colors and-or numerical values of playing cards and squares of chess board. Namely squares of chess board and playing cards during games or puzzles have comparing in the event that colors and-or numerical values are identical. Or it is possible to tell that key rule consists that playing cards of identical colors and-or digits can be imposed on each other. And also can be imposed on squares of game board where colors and-or digits correspond to playing cards.

original manuals of basic and full versions describes rules in Russian language Rules of 48th card game.
Use two reduced packs with numerical values of playing cards from 1-10 to 4-40 which settle down as chessmen in initial game positions shown on figure 26. Or preliminary playing cards of two reduced packs can be shuffled and randomized in initial positions.
Each player plays by cards of own pack.
In turn each players move playing cards on any number of squares over verticals, horizontals or diagonals as chess queens.
Moving is possible on free squares of corresponding colors, or on playing cards of opponent of corresponding colors and numerical values. And also on any playing cards of opponent which are on squares of corresponding colors.
For example, 7R can move on any free squares of red color. And also on playing cards which have red color or numerical value of seven. And also on any playing cards of opponent if they are on squares of red color.
Playing cards as a result of imposing on each other form piles which move entirely. Namely players have rights to move piles if own playing cards are top.
Game comes to the end when playing cards and piles cannot be imposed on each other, and when one losing player recognizes own defeat. That player wins who has more playing cards of opponent in own piles.

After game termination it is possible to count digital sums of playing cards in piles which belong to players.

Rules of 52nd card game.
Key rule of this card game is similar to previous, but principles or instructions for comparison of playing cards with squares of chess board differs that colors and numerical values are considered together. Namely playing cards in this case should correspond not only to colors or suits which correspond with verticals, but also should correspond to digital meanings which correspond with horizontals of game board.
Use two full card packs. One pack is staking, and the second is betting.
Players preliminary shuffle playing cards of staking pack and display upside-down in casual odder on dark squares of game board.
Also players shuffle playing cards of betting pack and have behind game board in a store pile.
Players by turns open playing cards from the store pile and place on the game board.
Each card can be laid on crossing of vertical row of corresponding color and horizontal row of corresponding digital meaning, namely only on identical square.
To each playing card there correspond two identical squares, namely one is dark and second is light. For example, for 3R there correspond dark red and light red squares on the third horizontal of game board.
Playing cards of staking pack initially have been located on dark squares. Therefore players start to spread betting pack on light squares, but then during game can spread on dark squares if they become free.
After each placing of betting card everyone of players is obliged to shift any one staking card which is on adjacent square. Namely players open staking cards and shift on any free identical squares.
If on adjacent squares there are no staking playing cards with upside-down faces then there is nothing to open and shift.
That player loses who could not place staking or could not shift betting cards on free identical squares of game board.

Any number of players can take part in this card game. And sizes of loss can be counted according to numerical values of playing cards which are not placed or shifted on squares of chess board.

According to rules of this variant of card game it is possible to carry out patience puzzle.
Playing cards of staking pack can be arranged on dark squares of game board by faces upwards befor beginning of patience.
Patience is solved if all playing cards of two packs are placed on identical squares of game board.

At this point brief review of several card games can be finished.
